-- steve jobs working in his career came up with stuff. i did not know that steve jobs was working in that group on the computer. we want to have space for that. we need space for innovation, it is a constant challenge. the power of the conventional is so overwhelming and the convergence is so powerful that to try to innovate is exhausting in government. let me tell you. in spite of that, i am ready for several more years of innovation. i hope you are. i hope california is.

any public comment on item no. 7? area codes. >> no. >> welcome steve. >> thank you. i think commissioner ortiz had the right idea. cell phones seem to be proliferating all over the place. why don't all new cell phones have the new area code? i get people's business codes that have 415 for their business and some other area code for their cell phone. it's quite common. and i think also what happens is a lot of people from san francisco take their 415 number. my two children live in san diego now, but their cell phones are still 415 down there. so i think it would be very easy for any business to add a cell phone with a different area code, and maintain that phone number that they have always had as 415. i think that is the right idea going forward. thank you. >> thank you. any other members of the public that would like to comment on item no. 7? seeing none, item no. 7 is closed. commissioners? >> well number portability is also legislated that you are allowed to take your number with you. i don't think we want to make any recommendations that discusses number portabilit

lived out by his gisat-grandson steve hearst. the now 80,000-acre hearst ranch is one of the largest and oldest working cattle ranches on the california coast. but when the new generation of hearsts took over, the question quickly became, how can the ranch keep thriving in the modern era? >> and it was my ranch manager cliff garrison who said, "gee, steve, it's a shame we couldn't do anything with our beef." and i said, "well, why couldn't we?" and so ultimately we started pursuing the grass-fed beef, and it fit right in with the whole conservation solution for the property. >> it's fun. it's a picnic every day. you know, we love it. it's a beautiful place and a great place to work. >> so from the shadow of their famous neighbor, the hearst ranch is stepping into the spotlight these days with their brand-few grass-fed beef operation. grazing on rolling hills with picturesque views, the hearst beef is billed as nothing being added but their history, and it's true. the cattle thrive on nutrient-rich native grasses that have been there since the days of william randolph hearst, and toda
